Untitled: The Uncaged Sky

Stonnington Libraries

Event Date: 19 November 2022
Author / Presenters: Kylie Moore-Gilbert and Belinda Hawkins

Kylie Moore-Gilbert speaks to Belinda Hawkins about The Uncaged Sky, her fight to survive 804 days imprisoned in Iran, the complex game of global politics and what it means to be free.

In 2018, British-Australian academic Kylie Moore-Gilbert was arrested by Iran’s feared Islamic Revolutionary Guards and sentenced to 10 years in prison for espionage. Incarcerated in Tehran’s Evin and Qarchak prisons for 804 days and subjected to relentless interrogation, Kylie was pushed to the limits of her endurance by extreme physical and psychological deprivation. After more than two years of struggle, Kylie was released in 2020 in a high stakes three-nation prisoner swap deal orchestrated by the Australian government. This is her story.

Booking required.

Presented as part of the 2022 Stonnington Literary Festival, [untitled]: our writers, readers and stories.
